Sonic Series Continues to Age With Some Grace

Time to feel old.

Today. 21 years ago. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 was released.

Twenty. One. Years.

It's legal enough to drink and buy cigarettes.

We celebrate the aging Sonic series with the release of a classic: where Knuckles was introduced, a sad attempted at 2-player mode with Tails (who was helpful until you flew off the screen), and a 3 dimensional, top-down puzzle mini-game that was very unique for it's time. 

I remember this game fondly as a kid. My brother and I would play it constantly, swapping off the controller at each level because neither of us wanted to be Tails for longer the necessary. And Blockbuster would abuse this game for tournaments for years to come because they always felt it was "faster" then the previous Sonic games.

Today. We feel old.
